A CASH-in-transit van guard was robbed of two cases carrying an undisclosed amount of money early Monday morning. The robbery took place at the BP Express Shop in Broadway Road (on the R44, next to Spar) at 07:27. The drama unfolded after the armoured security vehicle of G4S Cash Services stopped in front of the shop at the garage. The driver remained in the vehicle while the passenger went into the shop to collect the cash. Upon his return, he was approached by two men “who threatened him with a firearm”, says lieutenant colonel André Traut, provincial police spokesperson. “They robbed him of the two boxes containing an undisclosed amount of cash.” Dawie Theron, one of the owners of the shop, says he is relieved no one was injured during the robbery. “It happened outside the store, and luckily no employees or customers were injured. Everything happened so fast – the whole incident was over in about 20 seconds, before anyone even realised what was going on.” He adds that an incident such as this teaches one to be more careful. He prefers not to disclose the amount of money that was stolen. According to a police report, the robbers fled the scene in a white Toyota Conquest with a distinctive mark on the bonnet; the mark is round, red and slightly faded. The robbers are described as being between the ages of 25 and 30 years. Anyone with information helpful to the case is urged to phone the investigating officer, warrant officer Shaun Swan of the police’s Organised Crime Unit, on 0 082 469 2164. ) Another armed robbery took place on Monday at the Macassar Engen Service Station.

Nóg ’n slagoffer van Strand-ontbloter vertel NÁ berigte in DistriksPos van ’n middeljarige man wat homself aan vroue op die strande in die Helderberg ontbloot, het nóg ’n slagoffer na vore gekom. Die vrou, wat in Malmesbury woon en jaarliks saam met haar gesin na hul strandhuis in die Strand kom, sê sy het al twee keer dié ontbloter teëgekom. Sy sê sy het besluit om te praat, nadat sy ander vroue se soortgelyke ervarings met die ontbloter in DistriksPos op 12 en 19 Januarie gelees het. “Ek is bereid om gegewens te verstrek wat tot hulp kan wees in die opsporing van so ’n gewetenlose vroue-molesteerder,” sê die vrou wat verkies om anoniem te bly. Die eerste voorval het in die 2010–’11 De-

FIRLANDS

sember-skoolvakansie gebeur. “Ons was daagliks by die see en eendag terwyl ek toesig oor my kinders in die see hou, het ’n onbekende lang, blanke donker-kop man met effe grys hare aan weerskante van sy kop, plek langs my ingeneem,” vertel sy. “Hy is ongeveer 45 jaar oud, het ’n pet op sy kop gehad, ’n donkerbril gedra en ’n rugsak by hom gehad. Skokkend was my ervaring toe hy langs my kom sit, homself begin ontbloot, en op ’n onwelvoeglike wyse my aandag op sy liggaamsdele wou vestig.” Die man het nie met haar probeer kommunikeer nie. Sy het hom net ignoreer, haar kinders gaan roep, die strand verlaat en die saak daar gelaat.

Die tweede keer wat sy hom teëgekom het, was 11 Januarie vanjaar. “Ek was wéér op die sand en tot my ontsteltenis het dieselfde man wéér langs my kom sit. Ek het hom dadelik herken en hy het my aandag probeer kry deur presies dieselfde patroon en hom voor my ontbloot,” vertel sy. Die uiters geskokte vrou het opgespring en vir hom gesê dat sy dade waansinnig is en dat hy siek is. Hy het opgestaan, die strand verlaat en in ’n wit dubbelkajuitbakkie geklim en weggery. ) Enigiemand met meer inligting oor die man, of moontlik ’n foto, kan die DistriksPos by 021 853 0211 skakel of ’n e-pos stuur na illana.frantz@helderberg.com.

SIR LOWRY’S PASS

Ma vas ná sy seun vasketting DELIAH BRINKHUIS

’n MA van drie van Sir Lowry’s Pass het gister (Woensdag) in die Somerset-Wes-landdroshof op ’n klag van kindermishandeling verskyn. Bubelwa Nkhosana (28) is verlede Woensdag in hegtenis geneem nadat bure haar vyfjarige seun en sy tweejarige neef in ’n plakkershut in die Rastakamp woongebied gekry het, waar hul alleen toegesluit was. Die oudste seun was met ’n ketting aan ’n bed vasgemaak. ’n Buurman het na bewering die kinders deur ’n venster in die slaapkamer gesien. Hy het sy buurvrou Christina Klaasen van die voorval vertel. Klaasen het omstreeks 11:50, toe sy haar dogtertjie by die kleuterskool gaan haal het, ander ouers van dié kinders wat toegesluit is vertel. Klaasen sê die jonger seun het op ’n kassie voor die venster gestaan. Daar was ’n emmer langs die ouer seun wat kaal bolyf was en ’n bruin fluweelbroek aangehad het. Met die polisie se aankoms was die kinders egter nie in die huis nie. Nkhosana het hulle intussen kom haal ná ’n buurman haar skynbaar by die gemeenskapsaal waar sy werk, gebel het. ’n Plaaslike inwoner, Celeste Robertson het haar kort hierna by die ingang van die woongebied vasgetrek waar sy die kinders by haar gehad het. Estie de Jager, ’n maatskaplike werker van Helderberg Kindersorg het bevestig dat die kinders in ’n plek van veiligheid is. Nkhosana het ook ’n sesjarige seun en 12-jarige dogter.

Twee kinders (twee en vyf jaar oud) is verlede Woensdag in die hittegolf alleen in ’n plakkershut in Sir Lowry’s Pass toegesluit.

Celeste Robertson het die ma gekry.

Kassier vas ná gewapende roof DELIAH BRINKHUIS

’n VROULIKE werker van die Macassar Engen-vulstasie is Maandag in hegtenis geneem in verband met die gewapende roof by dié besigheid, vroeër die dag. Die rower is steeds op vrye voet nadat meer as R100 000 gebuit is en hy op die vlug geslaan het. Volgens die polisie het die roof omstreeks 08:10 gebeur toe die man die vulstasie se winkel in Bindlaan binnegegaan het onder die voorwendsel dat hy olie wou koop. Die rower het na bewering ’n vuurwapen

op die kassier, wat agter ’n sekuriteitshek gesit het, gerig toe sy die olie aan hom oorhandig. Hy het haar twee keer beveel om die sekuriteitshek oop te maak en sy het gehoor gegee. Die rower het haar na bewering in ’n kantoor gedwing waar die bestuurder besig was om die naweek se kontant te kontroleer. Volgens Alain Locmant, woordvoerder vir die Macassar-polisie, het die rower die loop van die vuurwapen in die bestuurder se sy gedruk en hom beveel om die geld te oorhandig. Hy het die geld gegryp en ’n Ford Bantam-bakkie wat voor die vulstasie par-

keer was, gekaap. Locmant sê die Macassar-polisie het die man wat in die rigting van Khayelitsha gery het, agternagesit, vanwaar die polisie se blitspatrollie by hulle aangesluit het. Die rower het die bakkie in Baden Powellrylaan tot stilstand gebring en tussen die plakkershutte ingevlug. Die 27-jarige kassier is later die dag in hegtenis geneem en het gister (Woensdag) in die Somerset-Weshof verskyn. Mense wat met die ondersoek kan help, kan speur-ao.

HERSTELWERK aan die huis van die Liebenberg-gesin, ná ’n vragmotor op 6 Desember daarin vasgery het, is in die finale fase. Vicky, ma van drie, vertel dat hulle beplan om die sitkamer, waar sy en die kinders gedurende die voorval gesit het, na die agterkant van die huis te verskuif. Die vragmotor het hulle met enkele meters gemis. “Die kinders is steeds ’n bietjie jumpy vir harde geluide en hou nie eintlik meer daarvan om in die sitkamer te sit nie. Die verskuiwing is meer van ’n voorsorgmaatreël. Ons is nou baie meer versigtig en oplettend ná dié insident.” Vicky sê die trok is twee dae later deur die eienaar van die maatskappy, Geldenhuys Vervoer, verwyder. Sy en haar man het in die huis aangebly, want die deur kon steeds toesluit. Die kinders het vir die eerste aand by hul grootouers geslaap. Sy sê sy was beïndruk met die mense in die omgewing se behulpsaamheid. Baie bure het vir hulle slaapplek aangebied. Sy het ook groot lof vir raadslid Stuart Pringle vir

Sy meen dat die aangeleentheid glad verloop het en dat almal hul samewerking gegee het – van Geldenhuys Vervoer tot die versekering. Die tydelike heining wat opgerig is, is steeds daar en hulle beplan om sementpaaljies teenaan te bou as ’n toekomstige voorsorgmaatreël. Ten spyte van die insident, bly Vicky positief. “My kinders kon die dag van die ongeluk buite gespeel het, dan het ek hulle nie meer vandag gehad nie. Dinge kon soveel erger gewees het, so ons is net dankbaar.”

Fietsryers geteiken ILLANA FRANTZ

Coen Deetlefs se helm is in die aanval gekraak.

DIE blyk ’n tendens van boosdoeners wat niksvermoedende fietsryers aanval en beroof, is besig om kop uit te steek. Dit is wat Donderdag (19 Januarie) met Coen Deetlefs van Somerset-Wes gebeur het. Coen sê hy ry al die afgelope ses maande soggens sy fiets op die R102 (langs Firgrove). Hy het dié betrokke oggend omstreeks 08:30 in die rigting van Eersterivier gery het en twee mans onder die Baden Powell-brug sien sit. “Dis vroegoggend, so ’n mens dink nie iets daarvan as jy mense langs die pad sien sit nie. Mense is op pad werk toe en baie wag vir ’n lift om hulle te kom haal.” Coen sê toe hy verby die mans kom, het een opgespring en hom van sy fiets afgegooi. Hy het hard teen die pad te lande gekom en sy kop gekap dat sy helm kraak. Een man het weggehardloop en die ander een het sy fiets gegryp en teen die verkeer begin hardloop. Hy het die man agterna gesit en ’n motoris het gestop en ook probeer om die vermeende dief te vang. Die man het die fiets laat val, oor die treinspoor gehardloop en verdwyn. Coen vertel: “Die fietse is nie goedkoop nie en ek moes ten minste ’n effort maak om my eiendom terug te kry.” Naas sy helm het Coen se sonbril ook gebreek, hy het kneusplekke op sy lyf en sy fiets is beskadig. Hy moes nuwe speke vir sy wiel uit Johannesburg bestel. “Ek is ’n groot man. As hulle dit met my kon waag, wat nog van ’n vrou? Hulle is soft targets so vir hulle kan dit soveel erger wees.”

Helderberg in shock over double liquidation NIKITA SYLVESTER

FOR some Helderberg residents the start of 2012 was not a time of celebration but one of trepidation – three well-established businesses in the area have closed their doors recently. Builders Friend in Somerset West, Lumber City in Strand and Rock of Ages in the Gants Centre, Strand, are all names with which Helderberg residents are familiar. The news that these businesses

have gone into liquidation – or may face this fate – has shocked the community. Hundreds of workers face the prospect of unemployment. Thys Lourens, attorney for Builders Friend owner Jurgens Geldenhuys and Lumber City owner Johan Steyl, has confirmed that both businesses have gone into liquidation. Despite the fact that Builders Friend has been in existence since 1986, the business was compelled to

liquidate on Tuesday 17 January. “At this stage my client [Jurgens Geldenhuys] does not wish to offer further comment as it is already a huge disappointment for everyone involved and affected by this action,” Lourens says. DistrictMail approached employees of Builders Friend for their comment on the matter, but they were reluctant to speak. “We were asked to not divulge anything that was said there, so we are going to honour that,” says an employee

who wishes to remain anonymous. Lourens adds that his other client, Steyl of Lumber City, is also “extremely disappointed” and would likewise prefer not to elaborate due to the sensitivity of the matter. “Given the present economic situation he had no other option but to liquidate this business on 10 January,” says Lourens. Steyl has been the owner of Lumber City since 2000. Rock of Ages was also closed re-

Diefstal laat hul naamloos: Dr. Haasbroek en Vennote in Heldervue loop erg deur onder booswigte wat gereeld hul koper-naamplate steel. Sewe van die naamplate, wat sowat R650 een kos, is vroeg in die jaar gesteel. “Dit is duur en ons naam ly daaronder, want die name van ons dokters is daarop,” sê Annietjie Kotze wat hier werk. “Die plate dra sentimentele waarde vir baie by die kliniek en baie is al meer as 15 jaar oud.” Enigiemand met inligting oor dié diefstalle, kan die Somerset-Wes-polisie by 021 850 1303 skakel.

Staalnes vir duiwe: Twee duif-eiers lê in ’n nes van rondlê-staal ná hul ouers twee weke gelede by die Curudo Werkswinkel in die Gants-sentrum dood gevind is. “Ek vermoed hulle het met suur in aanraking gekom want ons het dié week baie met dit gewerk,” sê die bestuurder, Gerhard Russouw. “Hulle het heen en weer hier ingevlieg en ek het gedink hulle maak nes. Ek gaan dit by my hou, maar as iemand dit wil hê kan hulle dit kry.” Hank Chalmers, mede-eienaar van Eagle Encounters by Spier, sê dis onwaarskynlik dat aluminiumsnysels verantwoordelik kon wees vir die dood van die duiwe. Daar kan verskeie oorsake wees, onder meer ’n gifstof of selfs natuurlike oorsake. So ver Chalmers se kennis strek is aluminium nie giftig vir voëls nie. “Die kuikens sal teen dié tyd dood wees, omdat hulle nie onbepaald kan oorleef sonder inkubasie nie.”

A neighbouring business informs DistrictMail that, when Rock of Ages closed in December last year, they were under the impression that the business had merely closed for the holidays, but they’ve noticed that Rock of Ages hasn’t opened its doors since.

New bus service set to launch FOLLOWING numerous requests from commuters under siege by soaring fuel prices, Golden Arrow Bus Services will start a new bus service between Somerset West and Stellenbosch on Monday 30 January. The route, which will start at the Strand terminus along Main Road, will link up with the Park & Ride interchange opposite Southey’s Vines in Main Road Somerset West. From there, the route will continue along the R44, entering Stellenbosch at Merriman Avenue and terminating at the intersection of Cluver Street and Helshoogte Road. The new service is expected to attract a diverse commuter grouping that is set to include students, teachers, academics and personnel engaged in the many different sectors of the town of Stellenbosch. It is envisaged that, with increased patronage, the service will contribute to easing the congestion experienced along the busy R44 highway and indirectly alleviate the high frequency of accidents that occur along this busy road. With no rail link between the towns of Somerset West and Stellenbosch, the 22,3 km route has been under pressure from traffic.

District Praising the protectors

Mail EDITORIAL COLUMN

Some dreams do come true FOR more than six years, DistrictMail has been campaigning against the lack of public transport between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch. Our community has been pleading for years for a safe, affordable shuttle service between these two areas. This dream will finally become a reality on Monday. Golden Arrow Bus Services will launch a new bus route, leaving from the Helderberg in the morning and departing from Stellenbosch in the afternoon. To each and every individual who was part of this “fight”, and who voiced their need for such a service – this victory is yours. Now it is up to everyone to support these buses in order for them to become a permanent service, and to be expanded in the future. The need for public transport in the Helderberg, and across the country, is still immense. There are numerous children, elderly citizens and vulnerable men and women who have to rely on their feet to get to school, work, home. Many have to follow unsafe routes every day. As a community and a country, we have a very long way to go to solve our transport problems. However, this bus service is a step towards better circumstances; and for the moment all in need of it can rejoice.

I WAS privileged enough to attend the annual general meeting of the Somerset West Community Police Forum last week. The CPF facilitates interaction between the people of Somerset West and our local SAPS branch, and also provides a platform for the Metro Police and other role players in the safety and security sector to report back to taxpayers about their work in our community. This interaction has been made easier by the Somerset West station commander, colonel MaryAnne Williams, who goes beyond the call of duty in her service to the people of Somerset West. From the hard work that the police services and associated agencies perform every day, to the extra effort put in during the festive season, they deserve our wholehearted vote of thanks. I also want to mention the great work performed by the reservists

in assisting the SAPS; the many successful neighbourhood watches operating in Somerset West who provide an invaluable service in being the ears and eyes in the community; the Helderberg Crime Watch, which is always ready to go the extra mile; and everyone else who gives up their valuable time to assist the police services in building the safe community that we are lucky enough to live in. Unfortunately, some members of the public are often all too quick to criticise the sterling efforts of these people, and do very little to assist in upholding the law and public safety, and instead indulge in finger-pointing. How many otherwise–lawabiding citizens don’t indulge in breaking the law every day in ways that they think don’t matter? This includes illegally setting off fireworks at New Year in residential areas, driving after having had that extra glass of wine,

and speeding when no one is looking – not to mention the use of cellphones whilst driving, and every other little way in which the general public is selective in what laws apply to them. Crime prevention starts with every single person taking the responsibility not to disobey the law, and zero tolerance starts with ourselves. Accordingly, we make the work of the already-understaffed and overworked police personnel and supporting organisations all the more difficult, and we owe them a great vote of thanks for the hard work they perform. It is time that all the citizens of our town take responsibility for their own behaviour, and for ensuring that we all comply with our social responsibilities in sticking within the boundaries of the law.

A new benchmark in dementia and Alzheimer’s care concept to care Our concept of a specialist dementia and Alzheimer’s care facility founded on the basis of quality care and hospitality has been well received. Since our launch in September 2011 demand has increased and we welcomed our first residents during November 2011.

Over a relatively short period of time an occupancy level of 50% on our single units has been reached, which is a reflection of the demand for a much needed dementia and Alzheimer’s care solution. This is summarized in the response received from Dorette, daughter of our first resident, Mrs. De Lange when asked about the Livewell Suites facility:

“My mom always wanted only the best for me. Now that she has dementia, I am happy knowing that at Livewell Suites she will be able to enjoy the beautiful garden, warmth, companionship and individual care she now deserves”.

Three months ago I took her to animal welfare in Gordon’s Bay to get vaccinated, and the first thing they asked me was whether I was working; I told them I was not as I had been retrenched in December 2010, and only my fiancé is working currently. We live hand-to-mouth and have been going to interviews more then I can count. They told me that the vaccination alone was R150, which I of course don’t have. The lady gave me de-worming tablets and told me I could go dip her. I was shocked, as that’s the nicest way to say, “If you can’t pay then you don’t get the service.” On Sunday morning Skylah had three epileptic attacks. We immediately rushed her off to Helderberg Animal Welfare, where the vet gave her an antibiotic and tablets and told us to bring her back the next morning as he couldn’t tell me exactly what was wrong with her at that moment. In the end my fiance’s employer had to pay R285, because if we hadn’t, we wouldn’t have been helped. This morning she was taken to

the welfare again, only to be told that she had picked up some kind of disease known as “cat flu” – and that she was bleeding internally, and they couldn’t do anything for her. Writing this is the hardest thing to do, but someone has to say something because if I hadn’t been turned away three months ago I would still have had the most playful and cheerful puppy I could have asked for. I was willing to pay what I could, which is more then 50%.

ABIGAIL S STRAND Julia Evans, Helderberg AWS manager, responds: This is a sad story, but let me start from the beginning on how all welfare clients are treated (without exception). Every single person coming to the welfare to request vaccination or medical treatment for their animal is asked about their income. As a welfare we are abused by the general public that can afford a private vet, so it is crucial for us to know that we are assisting true welfare cases. Because of this, the owner would have been asked to provide an affidavit or proof of income. And it is this that people take exception to. Many leave in a rage, never to return. But if they are true welfare cases and do care for their animals,theycanmakethatsmalleffort.

The information is kept confidential. The cost of R150 for vaccination is an exaggeration on this owner’s part. I can guarantee that the owner would have been told that it’s R70 for the first vaccination (it includes the de-worming); the second vaccination (a month later) is R60, and the final vaccination is R80. The R150 may have been quoted for sterilisation – and this is a hugely reduced amount. If the owner cannot afford even that greatly discounted price, they should not own an animal. Animals, like children, cost money, and it is unfair to expect the welfare to support other people’s whims. We receive no governmental subsidies and we all work extremely hard at raising the necessary money to keep us going. The owner would also have been asked if they intended to breed the animal. This organisation will not support backyard breeders! If the animal is ill, the owner will be advised to give it up to the welfare so that it can be treated properly and then hopefully rehomed to a family that can afford proper care. It is a very sad story regarding this little pup, but the responsibility in getting proper care lies with the owner, not the welfare. But please bear in mind that the first vaccination is not a guarantee that a puppy won’t get the dreaded disease. It is a course of vaccinations that provides the proper cover.

Brazen thievery: Val von Bülow from Golden Acre, Somerset West, recently took this photo. “During the recent holidays this manhole cover at the Helderzicht Road entrance to Beaumont school was stolen,” Von Bülow writes. “Somewhere there is a scrap metal dealer without a conscience who accepted this, as he has done with many other manhole covers in the past. Why are we so helpless in the face of this rampant theft?”

Soup kitchen suspended THE Helderberg Street People’s Centre has been operating in Sir Lowry’s Pass Village for some four years, during which time the Day Care Centre has fed over 200 people every day. The centre’s committee has, however, taken a decision to suspend the operation of the kitchen pending a review of several aspects, including: a reassessment as to whether we are meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in the community; how such help can best be rendered; and what administrative processes and procedures can be put in place to ensure accountability and an effective use of limited resources. All other activities at

the centre will continue, such as skills training, the delivery of food to the sick in their homes, support for those who are infected or affected by HIV/Aids, as well as for orphaned and vulnerable children and those who have come off drugs. These measures are only applicable to Sir Lowry’s Pass Village and will not affect the soup kitchen in Somerset West. We would ask for the continued support and prayers of the Helderberg community.

KOGEL BAY Beach blitz: A few caring Helderbergers spent hours cleaning up the trash-embattled Kogel Bay beach earlier this month after a festive-season littering spree left it in a “disgusting state”, says Richard Connell, one of the team members. “We spent a lot of time as kids surfing and camping at Kogel Bay, and to see it in such a bad way is upsetting.” So the team decided to take it upon themselves to pick up the rubbish – and filled 10 bin liners with trash including used tampons, soiled nappies, broken glass bottles, plastics, chip- and sweet-packets, among others. Ocean Minded, an organisation focused on keeping beaches clean, helped them dispose of the rubbish. The group of friends who took part in the clean-up are (from left) Dino Venturino, Gavin Joubert, Richard Connell, Bianca Botha, Zanchia Kotze and Tanya Botha. They have also created a group – Keep Kogelbaai Clean – on Facebook.

SOMERSET WEST Volunteers needed: The Somerset West police are looking for new volunteers for their victim support unit. Those interested should have a passion for people and the desire to assist people experiencing trauma. If you are a team player, between the ages of 35 and 65 and willing to be trained as a councillor, collect an application form from the victim support office between Tuesday and Friday. Currently involved at the victim support are (from left) Jackie de Souza, Suzan Jantjies, Tersia Theron and Wilma Jansen (coordinator). For more information phone Suzan or Wilma on 0 021 850 1393.

Alice celebrates a century of life FORMER Somerset West resident Alice “Lal� Gibson celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this month. Around 60 family and friends attended her party on 14 January – the day after her birthday – at her home in Workingham, Berkshire, England. Alice, a stand-out member of the Helderberg community, moved back to England six years ago. She thoroughly enjoyed her involvement with the St John Ambulance Brigade, the Women’s Auxiliary at the Methodist Church, the Sequence Dance

Club and her knitting club, to name a few. After retiring and moving to South Africa in the early 1970s, Alice soon got bored and ended up working at the Patty Pan Tuisnywerheid for over 10 years. She was given the title of Dame Alice by the queen of England in the late ’90s. Her grandson Allan Ware, who surprised her with a visit on her special day, says Lal sends her love to all her friends in South Africa. Should anyone wish to get in touch with her, give Allan a call on 0 082 515 8184 to find out her contact details.

Dudley and Jenny Rowswell (right), also from Somerset West, enjoy the festivities with cousin Judith Bonnell.

SIR LOWRY’S PASS

Gideon skryf ’n storm los ILLANA FRANTZ

SIR Lowry’s Pass-inwoner Gideon Strydom is een van ses finaliste vir vanjaar se Sanlam-prys vir Jeuglektuur en kan moontlik sy eerste boek op die rak hê. Gideon is ’n vryskutskrywer en gee ook Engelse en Afrikaanse taalklasse. Hy het verlede jaar sy MA-graad in Afrikaans en Nederlands aan die Rhodes-universiteit in Grahamstad verwerf. Dit is die eerste keer wat Gideon sy hand aan ’n jeugverhaal gewaag het. “Ek het op ’n jeugverhaal besluit, al is dit moeiliker om vir dié mark te skryf. Daar is baie spesifieke goed wat jy mag sê en nie mag sê nie, maar ek het uitgesien na die uitdaging,” vertel Gideon. Gideon sê die sluitingsdatum in die Afrikaanse kategorie was reeds in Junie verlede jaar en hy het “half amper van die kompetisie vergeet”. Hy sê hy het per onge-

Gideon wou nie veel geheime oor die storielyn in die boek weggee nie, maar was wel bereid om te sê: “Dit gaan oor ’n hoërskool seun en alles waarmee hy moet deal”. Hy voeg by die tema van die boek is hoop. Ná Gideon jare gelede in Vryburg in Noord-Wes matrikuleer het, het hy aan die Universiteit van Pretoria gaan studeer. In sy

eerste jaar het hy die Kaap kom besoek en sy hart op die Moederstad verloor. Ná universiteit het hy oorsee gaan reis en sy vrou, Mariheca, ’n besigheidskonsultant oorspronklik van Johannesburg, in Londen ontmoet. Die egpaar het vier kinders. Oor die kompetisie is hy baie opgewonde. “Van die ander finaliste het reeds gepubliseer en ander het al gewen, so dis ’n taai stryd. Maar ons kyk maar wat gebeur,” sê hy met ’n glimlag. ) Die kompetisie het drie kategorieë: Afrikaans, Engels en Afrikatale. Altesaam 109 inskrywings is ontvang. Ses finaliste is in elke kategorie geïdentifiseer. In elke kategorie is daar twee pryse op die spel: R12 000 vir Goud en R6 000 vir Silwer. Die wenners word in Oktober by ’n glansgeleentheid in Johannesburg aangekondig. Die wenboeke sal kort daarna op winkelrakke en in e-boekformaat beskikbaar wees.

Dance your way through Dixieland 2012 THE next of the popular Dixieland festivals of music and picnicking takes place on Saturday 11 February. This year marks the 26th sunset concert, which will take place at Somerset College in Bredell Road (off the R44 between Somerset West and Stellenbosch). Organised by the Anns of the Helderberg Rotary Club, the event is set to feature plenty of family fun, dancing under the oaks, and scrumptious picnics. The Riverboat Jazz Band, saxophonist Gerald Foster and a marimba band will set the tone with their lively sounds. The original Riverboat Jazz Band was formed in 1978, and although there have been some changes in band members over the years, they are still very popular at corporate and private functions. They have also been playing at the Dixieland concert for a number of years, entertaining crowds with traditional Dixie jazz, ’50s swing, ’60s rock and great dance music. This year the talented and popular Lola Geiger will again be the accom-

The gates open at 15:30 on Saturday 11 February; tickets cost R65 for adults and R10 for teenagers. Children under 12 get in for free. You can get your tickets at Dante Art & Décor (Waterstone Shopping Centre, Somerset West); Talking Books (The Circle Centre, Somerset West); Wordsworth (Somerset Mall); or at the gate on the day.

You can support the various food and drink stalls, or take your own picnic. Though a limited number of chairs are available for hire, the organisers ask people to take their own chairs and umbrellas – “and remember warm jackets, just in case”. Contact Sandra on 0 074 195 0797 or at 2 dicksan@mweb.co.za, or Elza on 021 855 4691. ) All the funds raised through the Dixieland concerts are donated to local charities.

GORDONSBAAI

Teenspoed stuit nie die vasbeslote jong man JASON FELIX

PAUL Steyn van Gordonsbaai gaan binnekort ’n staptog van net meer as 310 km met ’n kunsbeen aanpak – ’n sprekende voorbeeld van iemand wat sy verlies verwerk het. Steyn (25), oorspronklik van Uitenhage, begin sy staptog tussen Worcester en Kaapstad op 1 Februarie. “Ek doen dit uit liefde om ander mense te help,” sê Steyn. “Daar is baie mense wat hul bene verloor het en nie ’n prostese kan bekostig nie. Ek weet wat dit is om nie te kan loop nie.” Steyn se prostese het sowat R100 000 gekos. Sy nie-winsgewende maatskappy, die Paul Steyn Foundation, is gestig met die doel om geld in te samel om projekte te bemark en te beplan. Paul vertel dat hy sy been verloor het toe hy 13 jaar oud was ná ’n boskapperma-

sjien oor sy been gery het. “Dokters het probeer om my been te red, maar ná ses-maande se pogings het hulle besluit om dit net onder my knie te amputeer.” Paul se passie vir liefdadigheidswerk is ontwikkel in die dae toe hy die gemeenskapsontwikkeling en fondsinsamelingsportefeulje beklee het by Boland Kollege in Worcester. Planne is reeds aan die gang vir nog staptogte later vanjaar tussen Pietermaritzburg en Paarl en Port Elizabeth en Kaapstad. Verskeie besighede in die Helderberg borg Paul se staptog na Kaapstad. Hy beplan oornagstoppe in onder meer Ceres, Tulbagh, Riebeeck Kasteel en Melkbosstrand. Paul se ervaringe van die staptog kan op facebook.com/paulsteynfoundation gevolg word of besoek sy webtuiste www.paulsteynfoundation.org.za vir skenkings.

Food for thought

Legumes: ancient food, future food Susina Jooste is the director for academic development at the Private Hotel School; call her on 0 021 881 3792. The Private Hotel School is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training as a private higher education institution under the Higher Education Act of 1997.

ONE of the most dramatic changes on the culinary scene in recent years has been the rediscovery of grains and legumes. Everyday grains – wheat, corn, rice – are appearing in many new forms, and beans, lentils and chickpeas are growing in popularity. Exotic grains such as millet, quinoa, bulgur and beans that were once rarely seen are now easily available. Seeds are our most durable and concentrated foods. Seeds are the structures by which plants create a new generation of their kind. They contain an embryonic plant together with the food supply to fuel its germination and early growth, and they have an outer layer that insulates the embryo from soil and microbes, making it ideal to safely store them for future use. Grains, legumes and nuts form the three major categories of seeds. Legumes have long been an essential and affordable alternative to protein-rich food. With the price of red meat – the primary source of modern protein – constantly escalating, and concerns with sustainability, there is a growing tendency to go back to this ancient food. Legumes produce seeds that are especially rich in protein, thanks to their symbiosis with bacteria that live in their roots. This also means that legumes actually enrich the soil they grow in, which is why various legumes have been grown as rotation crops since Roman times. A remarkable indication of their status in the ancient world is the fact that each of the four major legumes got their names from prominent Roman families: the Fava bean was named after Fabius, the lentil after Lentulus, while Piso inspired the pea and Cicero the chickpea. Apart from their high protein content, legumes are high in soluble fibre, minerals and vitamins B and E. They can also reduce bad cholesterol and stabilise blood sugar levels. Unfortunately, legumes are often misunderstood and labelled as hard-to-cook, time consuming and causing discomfort after eating. This myth should now be put to rest once and for all. I hope that the hints, recipes and illustrations in this article will inspire you to explore more, and contribute towards happy, healthy cooking sessions in your kitchens. Hints: ) Buy small quantities at a time from a retailer with a huge turnover, because they can go rancid if stored for too long at high temperatures or in humid conditions. ) Soak beans overnight and discard the water. Rinse at least twice during the cooking process to ensure that the large sugars will be broken down and that they will be easier to digest – instead of causing discomfort after eating them.

Season with salt and pepper and garnish with more sage leaves.

Heart failure won’t stop Carmen NEARLY losing your life twice before the age of 34 is frightening, but Carmen Hannies from Somerset West is a survivor who won’t stop until she knows what it feels like to live life to the fullest. Carmen’s ordeal started when she was just two years old and suffered from rheumatic fever. It was misdiagnosed as flu, and as a result it affected her heart. “A few years ago I became quite despondent about being unfit, so I joined the gym and began to exercise quite intensely,” recalls Carmen. “But the more I exercised, the sicker I got. Then one night I woke up and I couldn’t breathe. I went to the hospital emergency room, where they realised I was suffering from heart failure, and underwent open-heart surgery to save my life.” After four months of recovery, she was told she could start exercising again. However, due to complications with the operation, she then suffered a stroke. “Once my doctor gave me the go ahead to start exercising again, I made the decision to join Adventure Boot Camp. Their programme was perfect as it allowed me

to work at my own pace, outdoors, under the guidance of a personal trainer. It changed my life.” Carmen says her overall health has made a turn for the better, and being outdoors with the other supportive women

in the programme is just what she needed. “Nearly losing my life twice is very scary, and I thank God every day for showing me there is a way to live life to the fullest despite any challenges thrown my way.” If you’d like to find out more, pay a visit to www.adventurebootcamp.co.za.

Carmen Hannies is full of life.

The art of fine things THE talented students of the René Honeyman Jewellery Academy in Gordon’s Bay have started their year with treasure troves of enthusiasm. Honeyman has been in the jewellery trade for 18 years, and her students have regular exhibitions at the Hathersage Wine Farm in Somerset West to show off their work. The course at the René Honeyman Jewellery Academy takes three years, full time. “I do not enrol more than six students per year – to ensure one-on-one learning – so early applications are essential,” Honeyman says. “The fees include a toolkit and bench peg so that the student can work at home if needed.” For more information visit www.silva-art.co.za.

Maak 2012 ’n blomjaar DIE Helderberg-blommeklub skop hul 2012-program Saterdag 28 Januarie om 14:00 in Somerset-Wes-biblioteeksaal af. Emmie Pabst, president van die Suid-Afrikaanse Flora Unie, gaan haar slag met blommekuns kom wys. Emmie is ’n gewaardeerde nasionale en internasionale beoordelaar en demonstrateur en lid van die onderrigpaneel. Sy is ’n baie gewilde blomkunstenaar, omdat sy met min items mooi en groot blomkunsvorms kan skep. In vandag se ekonomiese klimaat is dit die ideaal vir die gewone mens om ook sulke blommekuns in hul huise aan te pak. Koos Myburg en Tommy Dell, twee erelede van die klub, sal ook die geleentheid bywoon. Tommy sal die gehoor met sy sang vermaak en sjef Danie Pretoruis sal al die eetgoed verskaf. Almal is welkom om by die klub teen R60 vir die jaar aan te sluit. Jy kan ook as gas na die klub se vergadering kom teen ’n besoekersfooi van R20. Vir enige navrae, skakel die klub se voorsitter, Jannie du Toit, by 072 473 2420.

Firing the myths: Suffering, according to Bruce Relly’s 2nd Fire, is not sent to test our submissiveness, but nature’s inducement for us to engage more consciously and joyously with life. This book offers an unsentimental approach to suffering: in it the author rearranges medical priorities to match nature’s “ancient, even-handed, logical and essentially simple formula for spiritual growth” – and the healing that goes with it. “The main challenge is to fully realise that we are individually responsible for all our past, present and future experiences. To achieve this empowerment, however, we need to abolish a number of persistent superstitions or misconceptions we have regarding pain, relationships and personal destiny. The relief of suffering will become general when practitioners and educators can bring to the metaphysical laws of healing the same level of understanding that science has already brought to the laws of physics and chemistry.” ) Bruce Relly grew up on Waterkloof Farm, Somerset West. He has now retired from his formal profession as a geologist and is living with his wife Mary at Rooiels. His other occupations, aside from applied philosophy, are painting and photography.

Kindersorg brei uit na S’Pass

Giving The Ark a reason to smile LAST year’s Shoebox Project, run by the Somerset West Lions Club, has been hailed as a huge success. The project entails filling shoeboxes with goodies to the amount of R100 – earmarked for a boy, girl, lady or gent – then wrapping the boxes and donating them to a worthy recipient. The most recent recipient was The Ark, a place of refuge that opened its doors in 1992 to the abused, rejected, addicted and homeless people of South Africa. The organisation occu-

pies a large campus opposite Mfuleni outside of Cape Town. “We would like to thank the Hottentots Holland High School, the staff, personnel and doctors at Mediclinic Vergelegen, and various friends of the Lions for contributing to this worthwhile and wonderful project,” says project coordinator Marquerite Alheit. The Somerset West Lions will be running the project again this year; those interested in participating can phone Marquerite Alheit on 0 084 233 3400 for more information.

TOE twee toegewyde mense, net bekend as mnr. en mev. Hugo van Somerset-Wes, in 1956 besluit het om ’n gemeenskapsprojek te begin, het hulle sekerlik nooit kon droom dat dit vandag só groot verskil in die lewens van só baie sou maak nie. Kindersorg SA se Helderberg-tak vorm deel van dié groot welsynsorganisasie oor Suid-Afrika wat die ontwikkeling van lewenskwaliteite vir alle kinders in nood bevorder. Die organisasie spits hulle toe op gebroke families wat in haglike omstandighede woon, maar kinders tussen 0 en 18 jaar oud bly hul hooffokus. Hul oogmerk is om dienslewering, ondersteuning en aanmoediging te bied wat op ’n gesonde gesinslewe gemik is. Opvoeding is ook ’n sleutelfaktor vir die sentrum, want soos Shareen van Staden (bestuurder: Kindersorg Helderberg) sê: “Dit bepaal enige kind se toekoms.” Die organisasie se maatskaplike werkers ondersoek gevalle van verlating, mishandeling en verwaarlosing van kinders. “Daar is baie gevalle waar kinders erg misbruik word. Dit is ons werk om daardie kinders na die regte kinderhuis te verwys of ander maatskaplike hulp te verleen,” vertel Esté de Jager, ’n maatskaplike werker. “As jy weet jy het ’n goeie uitwerking op ’n kind gehad – wanneer ’n kind sukses behaal het of ’n beter mens uitgedraai het – dít maak my werk vir my spesiaal.” Die organisasie werk hard om bystand aan gemeenskappe in nood te lewer deur kospakkies, klere en ander noodsaaklikhede te skenk. Hulle verleen veral hulp waar gemeenskappe deur natuurrampe getref word. “Die ergste ramp wat ek gesien het, was in Macassar toe nege mense verlede jaar hul lewens in ’n brand verloor het. Dit was vir my die hartseerste geval ooit,” vertel Shareen. Die organisasie hanteer daagliks hart-

Kindersorg het oor tyd verskeie kantore in die Helderberg opgerig waaronder Macassar, Somerset-Wes en Sir Lowry’s Pass – die nuutste sentrum. Dié sentrum het swaar op die gemeenskap se bydraes gesteun, maar sedert sy stigting het die finansiële situasie heelwat verander. Sir Lowry’s Pass kantoor word tans uit ’n wendyhuis by die polisiestasie bedryf. Hulle kort egter ’n “regte kantoor”, verkieslik ’n baksteenstruktuur. Lessenaars, rekenaars en ander kantoortoerusting word ook benodig. “Ons het besluit om ’n nuwe kantoor oop te maak, om sodoende die maatskaplike hulp nader aan ons gemeenskap te bring,” sê Shareen. Die voorgestelde kantoor sal naby Sir Lowry’s Pass Primêr wees. Om te help met van hul behoeftes: 0 021 852 3126 of 2 helderbergcw@telkomsa.net.

Two more still in need of a home PETPALS still has two dogs in its care – Bruno and James – that need a loving home. PetPals found Bruno in 2009; he had been tied to a tree and given a scant few metres in which to move around. Bruno, who has been sterilised and removed from his dismal circumstances, now needs a loving home because there are some personality clashes between him and the other male dog he lives around. James, on the other hand, has a white labrador-sized dog as a mother, but PetPals staff have no idea who the father is. He’s expected to grow into a medium to large dog. If you are able to adopt either one of these loving pets at a fee of between R200 and R250, contact Yolanda of PetPals on 0 021 854 6317 or 083 411 0738. You can also call Azanne on 073 180 2050.

James is a healthy and playful nineweek-old puppy. He has been de-wormed and treated for ticks and fleas, and he’s been inoculated. Bruno is used to having children around him and is very alert. He needs toliveonaproperty with high fences or walls as he can jump quite high.

Goeie agente is belangrik EUNICE VISAGIE

’n

Waterdigte kontrak en gereelde inspeksie. Dít is huuragente in Stellenbosch se raad aan voornemende verhuurders wanneer die beskerming van jou eiendom op die spel is. Stellenbosch het ’n geweldige groot mark vir verhurings. En ofskoon die besigste tyd van die jaar nou eers verby is, bly die vraag na huureiendom steeds hoog. “Van Augustus tot September is ons besigste tyd van die jaar, want dan is dit die tyd om kontrakte te hernieu en nuwe huurders te kry. “Daar is egter nou steeds ’n groot vraag,” sê Leana du Preez, bestuurder van Chas Everitt in

Huureiendom, veral dorpshuise, is baie gesog in en om Stellenbosch.

Woonstelblokke soos dié is besonder gewild as studenteverblyf.

Stellenbosch. André de Villiers van Coetzenburg Eiendomme voeg egter by, dat, ofskoon die vraag hoog is, eiendomme nie meer so geredelik verhuur word nie. “Die besigste tyd is tussen November en Februarie wanneer die meeste studente woonstelle ontruim en by hul nuwe tuiste intrek. Woonstelle word egter

nie so maklik verhuur soos in die verlede nie aangesien die huurprys, volgens die huurders, te hoog is.” Verhuurders loop altyd die risiko dat hul eiendom beskadig kan word. Volgens Du Preez kan verhuurders egter hulself beskerm. “Die enigste beskerming is ’n goeie verhuringsagent wat bin-

ne die huidige wetgewing funksioneer en goeie sisteme in plek het.” De Villiers beaam haar mening. “ ’n Waterdigte kontrak wat aan die nuwe verbruikerswetgewing voldoen, is baie belangrik en ook ’n deposito van verkieslik twee maande se huur,” sê hy.22 Wynland Eiendomme se Arina Crathorne glo dat verwysings van vorige verhuurders ook uiters waardevol is. “Verwysings is amper beter as kredietkontrole. Kry verwysings van ander agentskappe of eienaars dat die huurders wel jou plek sal oppas en goeie betalers is.” Anita Marais van Rooms for Africa glo dat die waarde van gereelde inspeksie nie onderskat moet word nie. “Maak gebruik van ’n verhuringsagent wat bereid is om elke drie tot ses maande inspeksie van die eiendom te doen.” Dit is ook ’n uitdaging om die gepaste plek vir voornemende huurders te kry. Volgens Marais is huise naby skole altyd hoog in aanvraag by gesinne. “Studente verkies die middedorp en plekke op kampus, terwyl ’n plek soos Welgevonden perfek vir jong werkende mense is.” Du Preez voeg by dat elke huurder sy eie behoeftes het en vir agente is dit nodig om daarby aan te pas. Daar moet eers na dié behoeftes geluister word voordat plekke aanbeveel word.

Doen jou huiswerk vóór jy van die plan af koop DIT kan problematies wees om eiendom van die plan af te koop, of jy nou ’n eerste huis, aftreeplekkie of ’n luukse meenthuis koop. Kopers moet op hul hoede wees om nie ’n kat in die sak te koop nie. “Die eerste voorsorgmaatreël is natuurlik om slegs sake te doen met ’n betroubare ontwikkelaar of bouer wat reeds bewys het dat hy ’n kwaliteit produk kan lewer, en wie se produkte by voltooide projekte besigtig kan word,” sê Berry Everitt, besturende direkteur van die Chas Everitt International-eiendomsgroep.

“Tweedens moet jy seker maak presies wat jy koop in terme van vloeroppervlak en afwerkings, en dat alles baie duidelik in die boukontrak uitgestippel word.” Hy skryf in die nuusbrief, “Property Signposts”, dat dit nie ’n ongewone verskynsel is nie dat ontwikkelaars ’n skoueenheid bou wat groter is of beter afwerkings het as eenhede wat van die plan af bemark word. “En in sommige gevalle word die koste van afwerkings glad eers nie by die geadverteerde prys van die eenhede ingesluit nie.”

As jy dus beoog om ’n huis van die plan af te koop, sê hy, moet jy nie skroom om die bemarker onder kruisverhoor te neem oor presies wat by die prys ingesluit is nie. En as jy dan beter afwerkings verkies, moet jy vooraf uitvind wat die ontwikkelaar jou daarvoor gaan vra. “Finansiering verdien deeglike aandag. Dit is dikwels ’n goeie plan om die ontwikkelaar se bank, wat reeds die projek goedgekeur het, te gebruik. Nie net sal dit makliker wees om ’n lening te bekom nie, maar jy mag selfs in aanmerking kom vir ’n spesiale leningspakket.”

Quick lesson in the meaning of bulb names FLAME LILY, one-day lily, flag lily, calla lily, St Joseph lily, corn lily, sword lily, westwind lily‌ There are quite a number of beautiful bulbs that bear the name of lily, but many of them cannot scientifically be classified as lilies. Of the flowers listed above, only the St Joseph lily can really be

categorised as a lily, as it is the only bulb on the list that is part of the genus Lilium and the family Liliaceae. According to the team at Hadeco Bulbs, the common names bestowed upon flowers are often misleading or duplicated. Each bulb is therefore given a distinct two-part scientific

name to avoid confusion. This name consists of the genus and species. The scientific name is universally used, so when shopping for bulbs, it is helpful to know the scientific name to ensure being given the correct bulbs. There is still the need to classify plants even further by giving

each individual specimen a specific name. A plant’s species name can be derived from a number of different characteristics, such as its discoverer, native habitat or perhaps appearance. Knowing the genus and species will help gardeners find their favourite bulbs.

The Hollies turn 50 IN celebration of their 50th anniversary, The Hollies will perform at the GrandWest Grand Arena on 23 February. The band, first formed in the 1960s, are regarded by many as one of the most successful British bands of all time. Like fellow British band The Rolling Stones, The Hollies have never broken up. Their distinctive harmonies and prolific song-writing talent led the band to produce 19 studio albums, 22 compilations and 67 singles. Since their first release in 1963, they’ve had 30 songs in the

UK singles chart and 21 on the Billboard Hot 100. Over the past 50 years few people can claim not to have heard a Hollies song, with perennial hits from the ’60s including Just One Look, Bus Stop, Carrie Ann, Jennifer Eccles, Sorry Suzanne, and their smash hit, He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother. In 2010 they were inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame. The two-hour show starts at 20:00, and tickets are available from Computicket at between R160 and R460.

Wake up to Freshlyground FRESHLYGROUND, with their original mix of indigenous African sounds and contemporary urban afro-pop and dance tunes, will blow you away on Saturday 4 February at the Paul Cluver Forest Amphitheatre. The band was formed in 2002, and is made up of seven talented and diverse musicians from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Fronted by the dynamic Zolani Mahola, the band exudes a live performance energy that has been the bedrock of their success. The experienced rhythm section of Peter Cohen (drums) and Josh Hawks (bass) is complemented by guitarist Julio Sigauque, keyboardist Seredeal Scheepers, Simon Attwell (flute, mbira, sax and harmonica) and violinist Kyla Rose Smith. In 2003, the band released their debut album, Jika Jika, and its immediate success firmly cemented the band as one of SA’s most successful young acts. Their second studio album, Nomvula, was released in July 2004. Radio stations quickly picked up on the single Doo Be Doo, and the catchy song went on to become a crossover favourite. The song was also the most played song in South Africa in 2005. The album sold 300 000 units in South Africa alone – earning it multi-platinum

Freshlyground. status. The success and broad appeal of the band was celebrated in November 2006 when Freshlyground won the MTV Europe Award in the category of best African act. The success of Nomvula was followed by that of Ma Cheri, Freshlyground’s third studio album, released in September 2007. Ma Cheri also went multi-platinum in South Africa, and the single Pot Belly became another major crossover success. In 2009 Freshlyground did four sold-out

tours in Europe, and they also toured for the first time in China, the USA and Canada, making the band one of a handful of South African acts to have a successful and sustainable career both internationally and at home. Now, with their fourth studio album, Radio Africa, Freshlyground is preparing to broadcast their unique sound to the rest of the continent and the world. Tickets cost R325 and are available at Computicket. The show starts at 19:00.

SkallaBrak wil ‘gees’ bring na Bertie’s SCHALK MAAS

“SkallaBrak!?” ’n Gedierte? ’n Branderplank? ’n Tipe krui? Wat kan die naam tog beteken? Eintlik is dit alles baie eenvoudig – dit beteken “gees!”. Twaalf jaar gelede toe die groep in Londen gestig is, was die gees-faktor die goue reël. Hendrik Brakwater en Skallamari het mekaar in ’n stowwerige woonstelletjie bokant ’n kroeg ontmoet, om die wiele aan die rol te kry vir die stigting van die groep wat tot op hede bekend staan as SkallaBrak. Dit was tóé al duidelik dat die wiele gaan afkom (op ’n goeie manier natuurlik). Intussen het SkallaBrak vier albums (Morsig, Musiek vir my Spaceship, Kophou Internasionaal en Hond se Gedagtes) en een DVD (SkallaBrak Live) die lig laat sien. SkallaBrak het ook by verskeie feeste

lêre restaurant, Bertie’s Moorings, op te tree en ’n bietjie gees te uiter. Die vertoning is gratis. Vir meer inligting bel 021 856 3343 of stuur ’n e-pos na info@berties.co.za.

Graad RR: Laerskool Hendrik

Hoërskool Strand blink uit: Benewens die Hoërskool Strand se uitmuntende 13 A-gemiddeldes en ’n 100%-slaagsyfer, het drie leerlinge hulself verder onderskei deur uitstekend in afsonderlike vakke te presteer en in die top10 in twee van die vakke in die Wes-Kaap geëindig. Andrea le Roux het derde plek vir Engels eerste addisionele taal behaal.

Louw in Strand het vanjaar hul eerste Afrikaanse gr. RR-klas begin. Die skool het nog plek en kinders wat vanjaar vyf word, kan vir 2012 inskryf. Klasonderwyser Marile Meiring is hier met Heinrich Bezuidenhout, Uané Lingenfelder, Mischa Labuschagne en Strachan du Plessis. Sufyaan Simons, Lara van der Westhuizen en Gert Gelderblom sit voor.

Top spots: Boston City Campus and Business College’s top graduates for 2011 are, from left: Hennie Steenkamp (IT), Kobus Louw (secretarial and office administration), Siphenathi Sigwece (sport administration), Lorencio Opperman (service industry), Relabohile Makoala (accounting), Gerda Antonie (Boston principal), Bulelani Ndilele (legal), Lea Carswell (hospitality and leisure), Kathrijn Schmidt (management) and Wendy-Ann Boer (HIV/Aids).

Sparkling: These pupils of the Sumé Dance Studio have excelled in the Association for International Dance Teachers’ exam, the culmination of the top – not to mention the toughest – dance syllabus in the world. “The syllabus is designed with extraordinary dance techniques that allow pupils to excel on all levels of dancing,” says studio principal Sumé Lötter. But this did not faze the pupils, who went on to obtain honours and distinctions in their respective grades.

Engels: Chelsea Rheeder was sewende plek in Engels eerste addisionele taal.

First day back: SWPS’s pupils in Grades 1 to 7 are seen their first morning at primary school.

Ready for the year:

Besigheidstudies: Ruan Oostenbrink het negende in die Wes-Kaap in besigheidstudies geëindig.

Grade 1 pupils Riley Payten, Jessica Myburgh and Davon Oliphant.

Apostle’s visit a landmark JASON FELIX

IN his first ever visit to the Strand–Gustrow congregation, the international leader of the New Apostolic Church left a message with its members that will remain embedded in their hearts for years to come. Members waited in anticipation for the arrival of chief apostle Dr Wilhelm Leber, and when the moment finally came the hall was lit up with smiles as many in the congregation laid eyes on him for the first time in person. His presence brought with it a feeling of excitement akin to that of a child’s on a Christmas morning. “Let us all pray for experiences of faith this year,” Dr Leber said to kick off his service, which was attended by 1 726 invited members – and broadcast to 130 000 viewers in other congregations in Cape Town, Eastern and Northern Cape, and even Namibia. The chief apostle was accompanied by district apostle Mark Woll from Canada, district apostle Rudiger Krausen from Germany, and other local apostles and bishops. And the visit left the local congregation overwhelmed. “The visit of our chief apostle was truly amazing,” said Marta Wessels from Broadlands Park. Veronica Erasmus from the Strand greeted Leber with both hands. “You could really feel the love that man has for people,” she beamed. Patronella Jonathan from Gordon’s Bay says her daughter’s birthday made the day even more special. “I never thought I would see the apostle in person.” The celebrations were concluded with a musical concert in the Silvertown auditorium in Athlone on Monday.

VINPRO INLIGTINGSDAG

Kenner maan SA-boere Main Street vs Wall Street EUNICE VISAGIE

BOERE moet pro-aktief wees en fokus op dít wat bestuur kan word. Dit was die raad van prof. Johan Willemse, voorsitter van departement van Landbou-ekonomie aan die Universiteit van die Vrystaat, by die sewende Nedbank VinPro Inligtingsdag. Dit is 19 Januarie by die Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset-Wes aangebied. “Ons moet fokus op dit wat bestuurbaar is. Dit is die grootste uitdaging wat landbou in ons land in die gesig staar. Politiek, die ekonomiese krisis en internasionale markte is nie iets waaroor jy as boer beheer het nie. Jy gaan niks omtrent die ANC se leierskonferensie kan doen nie, maar jy kan jou somme maak en kyk waar dit moontlik is om te spaar. Moenie die klein jakkalsies onderskat nie,” het Willemse gesê. “Jy het wel beheer oor jou visie en doelwitte. Dit is nodig om ’n aksieplan daar te stel waarvolgens jy kan werk. En moenie

perspektief verloor nie. Wees deurentyd positief oor dit waarmee jy besig is. Ek ken nie negatiewe mense wat suksesvol is nie. As jy negatief raak, is jou fokus nie meer reg nie en dit is ’n resep vir finansiële ondergang.” Willemse het harde woorde vir die boere gehad. “Julle sê dit gaan sleg. Maar hoe kan jy sukkel as jy ’n strandhuis in Hermanus het? Kyk na jou private lewenskoste. Kan jy met jou hand op jou hart sê dit gaan sleg met jou? Maak die nodige aanpassings.” Dit is duidelik dat moeilike en belangrike besluite in die nabye toekoms geneem sal moet word. “Moenie gemiddeld wees nie. Besluit wat die beste gaan werk vir jou. Onthou, die groot manne gaan groter word. Die klein outjies gaan op meer as een mark fokus. Dit is dié wat hulle in die middel bevind, wat gaan moet aanpas. Jy sal groter raak, of ’n niche-mark betree,” het Willemse gemaan.

THE title of this article refers to the real economy at business level vs that at the level of the stock market. The stock market reports the value of the underlying businesses making up the real economy. So in theory the stock market should reflect what is happening in the economy. However, sometimes there is a disconnection. This might be because the stock market tries to predict where the real economy is going. Take the 2008 stock market correction, which was followed by the recession. The stock market did not cause, but correctly predicted, the recession. But sometimes the stock market can get it wrong. The JSE All Share Index ended last week at an all-time high. Does this mean the real economy is going to prosper this year? Most of the articles I have read seem to predict a difficult year ahead for SA business. So is the stock market getting it wrong? If I knew the answer I would probably be on my yacht instead of writing this article. A primary driver of the JSE’s valuation is the current level of commodity prices.

After totally collapsing in 2008, commodity prices recovered, taking the JSE All Share Index with it. So if I were to predict at what level the JSE All Share Index is likely to finish the year I would look closely at where I expect commodity prices to finish.

Five years ago, we managed to convert millions of South Africans to using CFL energy saving light bulbs and saved you money. Now, five years later, we’re back to change your energy savers that have reached the end of their life. Continue to use energy savers to collectively save South Africa’s energy. Energy saving lightbulbs have an environmental benefit because they cut your lighting cost by using less electricity and last up to eight times longer, resulting in a reduction in greenhouse gases. The small amount of mercury that energy saving lightbulbs contain is almost used up by the time the lightbulb is ready for disposal. So try not to break the lamp and dispose of CFLs at participating retailers.

Everyone looking to renew their spent CFLs for free

raise your hands!

Old CFLs can be exchanged for new ones in two ways: a. There will be a door-to-door exchange (people will come to your door to do the exchange). b. Self exchange points will be set up in certain areas, where you will be able to go and do the exchange.

Don’t miss out! Save energy and save money!

The exchange period will run from November 2011 to January 2012. www.eskom.co.za/idm

Blazing the trail: This year the famed Dirtopia Trail Run takes place at Delvera Farm on the R44 outside Stellenbosch this Saturday (28 January). Registration takes place on race day from 06:00, with the races starting at 07:30. This year’s runs will take place on a 7 km loop, as well as a 14,5 km route for those wanting more of a challenge. Runners will be timed. The cost of entering the 7 km race is R50; taking on the 14,5 km course costs R70 (pre-entries can be made at www.dirtopia.co.za). There will be a water point on the routes and drinks at the finish. If you’d like to find out more, call 0 021 884 4752 or email 2 theteam@dirtopia.co.za.

Geely joins Connoisseur

Cute Geely begets a grin

CONNOISSEUR Autohaus, a long-established pre-owned car dealership in Victoria Street, Somerset West, has with immediate effect become a franchised Geely & DFSK new-vehicle dealership, including sales, parts and service. The dealership will continue with its pre-owned vehicle operation. The new vehicles are already on display and available for demonstration and immediate delivery. Geely is the largest independent Chinese motor manufacturer, and over the past 10 years has grown faster than any other company in the Chinese automotive industry. A major strategic move by Geely in July 2010 was to purchase Volvo’s car unit for US$1,8 billion, which has infused Volvo’s famed high quality

and safety standards into the Geely Group’s ethos. Already more than 80% of Geely’s new cars are developed based on the C-NCAP five-star safety rating, and the remainder will reach the four-star level – a major breakthrough regarding the safety of Chinese brands, with Geely leading the field. Geely Automotive will establish 15 overseas markets with a global sales target of two million units per year by 2015. By the end of 2011, the number of Geely-authorised dealers in South Africa had risen to almost 50, of which 4 – including Connoisseur Autohaus in the Helderberg – are based in the Western Cape. Visit Connoisseur Autohaus at 70 Victoria Street, Somerset West, or call 0 021 852 5222 to arrange a demonstration drive.

TWO parcels, recently delivered in short succession, had me smiling: the first was an eight-week-old Springer Spaniel; the second a brand new Geely LC 1.3 GL. Both arrived clad in black, both were pint-sized and cute, and both soon proved to be quite entertaining. For purposes of this exercise I shall focus on the bearlike baby. Bearlike, for the Geely, certainly looks like a motorised panda. It certainly has the face, the shape and the behind akin to that of a baby panda. Not surprisingly, this is what the tot is called in the Geely household abroad. Here, however, it has to live with the rather bland LC moniker. It’s a pity, for the sibling merits something much more catchy and funky. In essence, the reason for my appreciation of cars is the fact that they are capable of eliciting almost all emotions. They can be appealing like a Merc, awesome like an Aston Martin, rousing like a Ferrari. They can be inconspicuous like a Toyota, mediocre like a Tata, or simply dreadful like a SsangYong. Or, they can make you smile like a Porsche Turbo, a Honda S2000 or, indeed, the Geely. One should never say never. Upon seeing a Toyota for the first time many, many moons ago, I was convinced that the newcomer from the East was not going to make the grade. I was dead wrong, for Toyota certainly is alive and very well. My first outing in a purple Hyundai Accent had me cringing and thinking that the brand was stillborn. Again, I was dead wrong, for Hyundai has become a global pace-setter. Upon hearing of the Geely, I had the notion that the name was not going to cut it. I now have a strong suspicion that this notion, too, was nonsense. For what nowadays is the paltry

sum of R90 000 one can buy a brand new car that sports a five-star C-NCAP safety rating, a 1 300 cc motor, air-conditioning, four airbags, remote-control central locking, a CD player with USB connectivity, driving lights, alloy rims, and a threeyear or 100 000 km warranty to boot. The LC is affordable, yet well-appointed; small, yet airy; unassuming, yet charming. The interior is cheerful, the ergonomics spot on, the performance adequate, the economy impressive, and the driving experience pleasing. As an urban runa-

bout, it certainly seems like a worthy contender. Criticisms? Only this: The separation of the remote control unit from the car key is unnecessary and irritating. The liquid crystal displays for fuel, temperature and trip distance are far too tiny for comfort. Lastly, the light-coloured upholstery of the test vehicle, while attractive, looked suspiciously stain-prone. The Chinese are breaking down Western preconceptions faster than their economy is growing, which is rapid. For its part, Geely, having bought Volvo in 2010, is showing that it means business. At a time when prices are such that most earthlings can ill-afford a new car, the Geely is a most welcome kid on the block. It may not be designed to win hill climbs or tow caravans, but it certainly presents good value for money at a time when money certainly matters. It deserves to win friends. I say this, for the friend who brought our pup has decided instantaneously to buy the motorised baby. With a smile, that is. ) The test car was supplied courtesy of Brian Abrahams of Connoisseur Autohaus, local Geely dealer.

SURFING

ANGLING

Beware the stingray ANGLERS, readers and crayfish (kreef) lovers who are all anxiously awaiting the outcome of the application to extend the period in which kreef may be caught will be disappointed with the developments to date. The application from the general fishing public was addressed to the minister in charge, because too many days of inclement weather were experienced during the open season. The person at the head of fisheries answered the letter and refused the extension. She apparently had no authority to answer the letter in her own capacity, and the whole business has caused a lot of friction and unpleasantness. The hot weather and very warm water along the edge of our beaches have not been conducive to good fishing, and only a few kob, elf and belman were caught from local beaches. Fishing was slightly better from our reefs, where saltwater fly fishermen reported catching a number of good-sized leerfish, up to five kilogrammes. Two of these larger fish were caught and released from Blinkwater reef. Large elf and leerfish are often caught from this reef. The other spot that delivered some good-class leeries was the reef opposite the old Rialto movie house that projects into the Poort area. Large elf of over two kilos were caught from the beach at Strandfontein on fresh bait during the past week. Anglers fishing from small boats and kayaks have also been successful in catching few medium-sized kob, as well as some smallish elf and blacktail, just off the Melk Bay Beach and the Poort area. On Saturday and Sunday commercial boats and weekenders caught a number of yellowtail inside and just outside the Cape Point area. Professionals and recreational anglers who fished in the Rocky Bank area caught up to 50 medium and large snoek per boat.

Strand shore angler Hennie Beukes holds up a kob he caught on Sunday morning at around 08:30, just before high tide. Hennie says he caught the fish on a 7/0 hook, using a whole pilchard as bait, while fishing from Platbank, left of the small tidal pool. He said the fish fought hard and felt like a geelbek, but the bait was solidly hooked in the gills. A word of warning to rock and surf anglers wading to and from the reefs and beaches: there are currently many large stingrays spread all around our reefs and taking the bait meant for other fish. When caught, care should be taken when releasing these large rays as they can inflict serious wounds to unsuspecting anglers. Local top shore angler Christo

Sponsored by

Botha recently hooked one of these big stingrays. As he released the ray it was washed onto Shark Rock, where he was standing, and he was jabbed in the calf. The protein in the venom caused Christo great pain and suffering. He was in such agony that he had to be hospitalised for a while. When wading it is a good idea to drag your feet along the sand when proceeding from the reefs to the shore. This action usually causes the rays to move away from where they have been lying in the sand. When walking normally, anglers can easily tread on a hidden stingray. When this happens the ray instinctively reacts by flicking its tail with the sharp barb on the end up and into the angler’s leg. The Western Province Shore Angling Association held an inter-club competition on Saturday 14 January between the Steenbras River mouth and Strandfontein beach. A large number of bronze whaler sharks were caught, weighed and released during the competition. False Bay Angling Club is the current overall leader in the league; the club’s Willie van Heerden showed his class by winning the day and taking the overall individual lead. Greg Kellerman from the Two Oceans Club also fared well during the competition. Anglers who wish to combine some great fishing with an adventure right into Angola, led by an experienced Angolan guide and angler, now have the chance to do so. If a number of anglers club together for this excursion they can enjoy an inexpensive fishing trip into the heart of Angola. Anyone interested in undertaking a trip like this may contact José Miranda in Stellenbosch on 0 021 883 8604 or 082 588 6355. For all reel repairs and services contact Art on 0 021 854 3831, and remember to keep sending your fishing news and photos to 2 bjridgway@telkomsa.net.

Strand surfer Steffen Burrows will be representing SA at the 2012 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Championships at Playa Venao in Panama in April. Photo: Karen Wilson

Steffen dons the green and gold TALENTED teenage Strand surfer Steffen Burrows is riding the crest of a dream wave after he was recently selected for the South African junior surfing team. Steffen’s selection for the 2012 national junior team means he will be surfing for SA at the 2012 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Championships at Playa Venao in Panama, South America, from 14 to 29 April. Steffen’s selection is the first for Boland surfing since 1999 and 2000, when twin sisters Penny and Tammy Robarts represented SA on international shores. His selection came about when he was included in the group of 15 of SA’s top u.16 and u.18 junior surfers who were invited by the Board of Surfing South Africa to surf in the 2012 SA junior team selection trials at New Pier in Durban over December. Steffen’s showcase of top-class surfing during the year continued at the trials, where he showed the selectors his mental and physical strength, as well as his ability to surf in any condition. The selection of the team was based on the performance of the selected surfers at the 2011 Junior South African Championships held earlier in the year – when Steffen earned himself a fourth place in the u.16 division and was selected as a member of the elite Hurley Coach Me programme – as well as the results and overall performance at the trial at New Pier. After a successful weekend of focused surfing by Steffen, the selectors were left with no choice but to include him in the national team. There are seven new caps in this

year’s national junior team. On arrival in Panama the South African juniors will first take on New Zealand in a “friendly” international. They will be competing for the Lotto SANZ Trophy, made from semiprecious New Zealand stone and South African yellow wood. This event has been running for the last 10 years; the trophy was firstpresentedinDurbanin2003,and is currently held by South Africa. Over 30 countries from five continents will bring their top junior surfers to the 2012 Quiksilver ISA World Junior Championships; it’s one of the premier events on the junior international surfing circuit as it provides an opportunity to showcase and launch a junior surfer’s international surfing career.

FOOTBALL

Beach football tournament a triumph THE first ever beach football tournament held on Strand beach proved to be a winner, with 16 teams taking part and hundreds of spectators enjoying the action last weekend. The tournament was organised by the Strand Football Academy (SFA), which falls under the Strand Football Club (SFC). Ten senior and six junior teams fought it out for the coveted trophies, which were donated by the founder and president of the SFC, Edward van der Merwe. The winners of the senior tournament were Samwu FC from Lwandle, while the runners up were from the Strand Football Academy. South End Sporting were

the winners of the junior competition, while another team from the Strand FC Academy were the runners up. The SFA’s club secretary, Aghmat Daggia, says the organisers are thrilled with the outcome of their first ever beach football tournament. He says they received a lot of positive feedback from many of the seniors who played in the tournament, with many asking when another beach tournament would be held. “The tournament was played in a fantastic spirit, and there were no problems encountered on any of the days,” Daggia says. “I would firstly like to

thank our club president, Edward van der Merwe, for everything he has done for the club and its members. I would also like to thank the committee who organised the event, and who ensured it ran smoothly throughout the two days.” Members of the City of Cape Town’s Department of Social Development and the City’s Sport and Recreation Department were present during the event, and also provided gazebos and handed out brochures about the dangers of drugs. Every junior player who participated received a free boerewors roll and cold drink, along with free entry to the tournament. With the majority of the senior and junior matches played on Saturday, it was only the semifinals and finals of the two divisions, as well as the subsequent trophy presentation, that took place on Sunday morning. Strand Football Academy’s management were so pleased with the tournament that they are planning to hold another one later this year. Funds collected from the senior teams playing in the tournament will be used by the SFA for junior sports development in the Helderberg area.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

BOLAND mountain bikers Dane Walsh (Somerset West) and Hanri Dalton (Stellenbosch) were the winners of the 24 Hours of Oak Valley mountain bike endurance race held last weekend. They completed the most laps of the 11 km circuit – which involved 250 m of climbing – over a period of 24 hours as solo riders. Walsh completed 30 laps, while Dalton managed 19. Walsh was joined on the men’s podium by Hentus Baard (also 30 laps) and Lance Stephenson (26). “It was the best 24 Hour ever! The event was great,” said Walsh. Dalton had a titanic battle with Anneline Trivella. But with 19 laps, she managed to pip Trivella by just one lap. Another Stellenbosch mountain biker, Dominique Provoyeur (14), finished third. The team competition was won by Rocky Mountain’s Jarred Haley, Timo Cooper, Mike Jacker and Martin Freyer, who completed 46 laps. A team from Somerset West Helderberg Cycle World managed second place in the team competition. The Helderberg was represented by Stephan van Zyl, Martin Rodenbach, Pieter Gildenhuys and Christiaan Kampfer. The Oak Valley Ladies – Elzaan Visser, Theresa Horn, Baredeen Zietsman and Mirian Stronkhorst – completed 24 laps. In the schools’ category, Paul Roos Gymnasium was victorious against two teams from Paarl Gymnasium. Edward Best, Stephan Senekal, Matthew Lombardi and James Buijs represented Paul Roos.

The management of the Strand Football Academy – Niel Bester (vice chairperson), Edward van der Merwe (president) and Aghmat Daggia (secretary) – say they were thrilled with the outcome of the tournament.

More than 300 riders participated in the event. This year Dirtopia, the organiser of the event, cut a new track for the race at Oak Valley – the wine estate that is now as famous for its mountain bike routes as for its wines. According to Dirtopia’s Meurant Botha, two thirds of the circuit are made up of single track, with over half of it blanketed by forest. “The tougher, longer lap (than previous years) made for a better race,” said Botha.

CYCLING

Venter strikes the Cape Cobra – and wins TALENTED Somerset West u.16 cyclist Ivan Venter, a pupil at Parel Vallei High School, was the winner of the second leg of the Cycle Lab Cape Cobra road race held on Sunday 15 January. Venter, who cycles with the Yorkshire Cycling Academy, finished fourth in the first leg of the series in the u.16 category the week before. The u.16 Yorkshire Academy riders had an early wake-up call to participate in the 30 km Cape Cobra League race in Cape Town. It was a short race, but the hills tested the youngsters,whofinishedonthefourkilometre uphill of Ou Kaapse Weg. The academy was represented by Graeme Ockhuis, Ivan Venter, Lee Arthur Green, Nicol Carstens and Damian Davids. Stefan de Bod (Aca Joe), who was in second overall position after the first league last week, was the main threat to the riders. But the academy’s youngsters went into the race with a plan: first to attack was Davids, after about four kilometres into the race. It was up to De Bod and the other riders to chase him down. Green then launched his attack while the other academy riders played the role of “watch dogs”. Eventually it was Venter who took over the battle on Black Hill. He got away, only to be caught

again. Refusing to give up, he pushed hard and finally built a comfortable lead. On the last four-kilometre climb on Ou Kaapse Weg, De Bod started to chase, but had Carstens and Ockhuis on his wheel. These three riders got away from the main bunch. Ockhuis dropped back – and Venter crossed the finish line for a comfy win. Carstens sprinted to take second place and De Bod finished third. The riders are now preparing for the third league race – the Bauckaert & Soenen 72 km – that starts and finishes in Paarl this Sunday.

FOOTBALL COLUMN

De Beers aim for promotion FIRSTLY, my trivia question for the week: who scored their fifth hat trick of the season during the past weekend? The answer’s at the bottom. As promised in last week’s column, I shall start focusing a bit more on our local football going forward, especially at amateur level. The 110-year-old De Beers Football Club recently started pre-season training. Anyone interested may join members every Tuesday and Thursday at the club at 18:30. For more information about the club and practices, phone Alan Menteath on 0 084 400 0789, or visit www.debeersafc.co.za, where you can also register for the forthcoming season. Last week, De Beers chairperson Mark Lansdell told me his vision for the club this season is to uplift the level of junior footballers and coaches in the Helderberg. He explained that he plans to do this by forming an alliance with an established international academy structure. “Investment in the senior structure at the club over the past two years is starting to show results, as both the first and reserve teams finished within the top-four spots on the league last season, which in turn started attracting new sponsors to the club.” Numerous life members I spoke

to during the past week agreed that the first team must settle for nothing less than promotion this season after having come so close last year. One of them even said, “We belong in the Cape Town Tygerberg Premier Division, where we used to be for many years.” One evening last week I went to the beach around 19:00 and was very impressed to see how hard a women’s team was training up and down the beach, without a ball in sight. There are few better places to get fit for pre-season matches than the beach. This particular team was from Stellenbosch, and they campaign in the Absa women’s league. I’m really starting to lose my faith in match officials. On Sunday the officials yet again missed an unsavoury incident in the Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspurs match. The incident occurred after Mario Balotelli blatantly stamped on Scott Parker’s head for all the world to see – except for the referee and his linesmen. I would really like to know how they could have missed such an appalling infringement right under their noses. To add salt to the Spurs’ wounds, the very same player went on to win a penalty in the dying seconds of the match, and convert it to win the game for City. He should not even

have been on the pitch! This weekend brings the fourth round of the FA Cup to our screens, and no match stands out more than Saturday’s clash between Liverpool and Manchester United. This is also the first of my prediction games for the weekend, with the second being the Sunday kickoff between Arsenal and Aston Villa. Remember to get those scores in whatever way you choose, either by SMS to 0 083 229 8583 or email to 2 footballcoachryan@gmail.com. You can also find me on Facebook. On the leaderboard so far for January, four people are tied at the top with one point each, namely: André Boer, Chris Beukes, Jaryd Stone and Junaid Roopnarain. Well done guys for the good start! Youngsters aged between 6 and 10, remember that I offer coaching at Beaumont Primary School on Tuesdays and Fridays to all kids from all schools. Until next week,enjoy the FA Cup and Afcon. ) The answer to the trivia question above is Lionel Messi.

RUGBY COLUMN

Legend focus: Hennie Shields THIS week I had the opportunity to speak to one of the legends of the game – not only in the Helderberg, but in the country. He is Hennie Shields, one of six brothers from the famous Shields rugby family. Hennie started playing rugby at Dr GJ Joubert Primary School, later moving on to Gordon High. His first introduction to club rugby was at the Wesleys Club in Strand. When the club’s two regular centres left, Hennie was moved from

flank to centre, a move he will never regret. As a 20-year-old, Hennie made his debut for the SA Proteas against the touring British Lions, whose squad included players such as Phil Bennet and Gareth Edwards, and he will forever be remembered for showing his class as a crash-tackler. Other international games Hennie played in were against teams such as France in 1975 and the All Blacks in 1976. In 1979 Hennie was off to Wales to play for the South Af-

rican Barbarians against Llanelli. Thereafter he represented a world international team on a month-long tour alongside players such as Hugo Porto from Argentina. In 1980 he got one more crack at the British Lions while playing for the South African County Districts side. Other teams he represented include the SA u.24 Gazelles and the SA Federation teams. Over the years Hennie Shields has played with and against many greats of the game, such as Rob Louw, Naas Botha, Schalk Burger (senior), Laurie Mains, Wynand Claassen and Hennie Bekker. However, Hennie insists that the biggest influence in his rugby career was that of his older brother, Turkey Shields. After his playing days, Hennie coached Strand RFC all the way up to Super League B, and they came within a whisker of playing in the top league. Hennie’s sons, Christopher and Ashwin Shields, both play for Sir Lowrians.

CRICKET COLUMN

Let the Helderberg Eagles soar AT junior level in the Helderberg, the regional teams are known as the Helderberg Eagles. So I was thinking about the possibility of starting a senior Helderberg Eagles side. I bring this topic up to try and find a solution to the state of club cricket in the Helderberg. As mentioned in a previous column, at one stage there were three cricket clubs from the Helderberg playing in the 1C league. At present we have two teams (Somerset West and Helderberg) in the 1D league, and the rest in the second division. Thankfully Helderberg and Somerset West have a great chance to get themselves back into the 1C league, which would be a great boost for cricket in the Helderberg. But how would a regional team boost cricket in the Helderberg? A number of players and administrators in the area believe this may be the way forward. I propose taking the top two or three clubs in the area and amalgamating their first teams. By doing this we will have a chance to put the best club cricketers in the Helderberg into one strong team. Although the team may not initially play in the 1A or 1B leagues, I’m convinced that – with the strength this team would possess – it wouldn’t be too long before they’d play there. All the amateur and franchise players come from the 1A and 1B leagues, so the level of cricket played here is good. The team could be run like a franchise – pick the best venue to practise at and spread the home matches around at the clubs being

represented. In doing this club cricket would be able to grow in the Helderberg and the team would be able to get better sponsors. The players who don’t make this regional side would play for their clubs’ second teams. This would make each club’s second team stronger, closing the huge gap between first and second teams and improving the quality of Helderberg cricket. At present many top youngsters who want to play at a higher level leave the area, but a team playing in the 1A or 1B league would give them a reason to stay. Quality local players such as Jaco Castle, Aziz Temoor and Emile Kriek currently play their cricket in Cape Town for this very reason. There is a lot that would have to happen before a team like this could become a reality, but it is certainly food for thought. Helderberg dominated day one of the topof-the-table derby clash against Somerset West, and are well positioned to win the match. Somerset West will have to dig really deep and pull out all the stops if they want to save the game. Congratulations to the Proteas for winning their one-day series against Sri Lanka. Next they travel to New Zealand – good luck boys!

HCC have SW on the ropes catches in the opening overs, Helderberg continued to apply more pressure on Somerset West and were rewarded with wickets tumbling all around. Shaun Dicks (55) was the only batsman who stood firm. Helderberg’s bowlers put in a good performance and were well supported with great fielding, which resulted in Somerset West being bowled out for 83 runs. Charl Katts was the best bowler for Helderberg and excelled with figures of 6-3-27. Adrian van Reenen (4-2-16) and Larry Morkel (3-2-7) also

bowled really well, while Ibrahiem Latief (9-1-27) and Vincent Castle (91-7) chipped in with a wicket each. Helderberg got their batting innings off to a solid start, with openers Gary Jon Sylvester (12) and Fahiem Adonis (22) batting well. After Sylvester lost his wicket Larry Morkel came to the crease; playing with great maturity and responsibility, he scored freely to take his team to 85/2 after Adonis lost his wicket. Jody Sylvester (68) joined Morkel (64) at the wicket, and together they set the scene for player–coach

Mario Solomons (89), who took the visitors’ attack to pieces with some aggressive batting. Helderberg batted for the full 60 overs and accumulated an impressive 266 runs to give them a firstinnings lead of 184 runs. Somerset West got their second innings off to a better start, scoring a quick-fire 35 runs before substitute fielder Algrin Beukes ran out Ibrahiem Gafeldien. Somerset West’s in-form batsman Shaun Dicks was next to lose his wicket, and when play ended on day one Somerset West were on 70/2.

If Somerset West want to make a fight of this match and come away from it with some points on the log, they’re going to have to dig really deep and focus on the tough task ahead. Player–coach Solomons said after the clash that his team could feel very satisfied in the way they approached this match, and with the hard work they put in. He however warned that a lot more hard work lay ahead. The player of the day went to Mario Solomons (89) for his ruthless batting display.
